Yet Again An Insightful Comment Lays The Disingenuous ADHA Exposed To Ridicule. They Really Need To Start Behaving Like Mature,Truthful Adults!
Again an anon. reader has called out the fraudulent ADHA. Quote from the comment in italics
“The measure of ADHA success is clear in the national strategy (or the let’s rationale our overblown budgets).
Extract from online version
Almost five million Australians now have a record (20% of the population) and, with opt-out participation arrangements due to be implemented from 2018, an estimated 98% of the population will then have a My Health Record. In 2018, Australia will have the highest participation rate in a national health record system in the world. For the first time, members of healthcare teams will have ready access to key health information for their patients.
Well it really seems that did not work out well at all with 2.5 Million citizens actively choosing to opt out and that number reflecting anything up to 20% of the population who had the capability to do so
We can also use the odd use of the internet and connectivity statistics to model the actual expected level of persons likely to be informed.
Careful study that shows there are more Medicare card holders than the actual population just reflects the level of spin needed to get a number of less than 10% let alone 2%!
There is also this extract that ADHA would like to be measured against
The benefits of the My Health Record system will be realised through the delivery of three strategic objectives:
1- Increase consumer participation through the delivery of national opt-out arrangements coupled with coordinated awareness activities.
2- Increase core clinical content of the My Health Record system through improved system functionality and integration with existing clinical workflows.
3- Achieve extensive adoption by healthcare providers across the industry, through national education and support, national peak body engagement and local education and support primarily using primary health networks (PHNs) as delivery partners.
To these goals we had the following comments
The first one it might be too early as conscription and participation are to completely different measures. I am sure we will see lots of well-meaning stories that are uncoordinated and continue to be forgettable.
The second one the ADHA has clearly demonstrated that they are willing to allow flawed software to continue for years even though it prevents clinical data entering the system – per the Guardian stories of the last week or so!
The third it seems evident at present this has actually been further eroded through repurposing the narrative toward consumers and pharmacies and away from GP, it is clear the target for emergencies and Ambo’s has not played out well (another Twitter length analysis by Timmy)
And from the poll from the MJA I posted a week or two ago in the Useful Commentaries blog it is clear many more than 70% of GPs are not wanting a bar of the thing – other than to do the minimum to receive the Government bribe (ePIP)
And let’s not mention the Health Care Homes raging success story.
Another shining light of the success of the Government approach of compulsion.
There was reports coming out of NT that Tim’s mis-directed marketing campaign resulted in a noticeable number of NT residents opting out of the NT EHR.
This is new to me – does anyone have further information of the truth of this claim.
I look eagerly to further comments of this quality!
